2008 Lotus Elise California Edition 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


If you do not fit in the same common human mold like most folks do, then you may want a different kind of car... consider a Lotus Elise if you want to be truly in touch with the road while plying the power and handling of your vehicle to it. The Lotus Elise built like no other vehicle I know of for the consumer market. Lotus has taken years of specialized racing builds turning their experience into a well built, well tuned, well heeled and well, a good-looking automobile that can turn heads and flat dust the next Guy. It is a race car built for the street, Lotus has produced a competent vehicle, a workhorse that wants to run hard as a different kind of daily driver.

Best Features

The rack and pinion steering. Fast acceleration built around variable valve timing. The hard but smooth riding suspension. The fit and finish of leather interior (California Edition). A rockin' body design (a great body to wax). Great choice of tire- Yokohama radial dimpled slick.

Worst Features

Honestly not much, otherwise you can change the car's personality. Better driver access for behind the seats. A slightly larger sun visor; encapsulate one visor into another visor for a pull-out visor.
